          "Blocked Plugin" is a tough one. Usually it can't be gotten around because Apple doesn't allow "downgrading" plugins.

          These steps have worked in a very limited few cases.

          Download the offline installer: Flash Player (Mac OS X)

          Download the Shockwave FULL Installer here: http://get.adobe.com/shockwave/otherversions/

          Save the files - DON'T run them yet.

          Go to: Mac HD/Library/Internet Plugins

          Trash the Flash Player.plugin file and the flashplayer.xpt file from there.

          Go to: Mac HD/Library/PreferencePanes

          Trash the Flash Player.prefPane from there.

          Go to: Mac HD/Library/Application Support/Adobe

          Trash the Flash Player Install Manager folder and Shockwave 12 folder (if it's there)

          Also in Mac HD/Library/Application Support/Adobe, trash the Macromedia folder (if it's there)

          Go to: [user]/Library/Preferences

          Trash the Macromedia folder

          Empty the trash.

          Making sure your browser is fully quit, run the Flash Player Installer and the Shockwave Installer.

          Open Safari and go to Safari>Preferences

          Under the Security tab, Make sure "Allow all other plugins" is checked.


          Hopefully, that will do it.
